Golden Mushroom Soup

Makes 6 servings

This rich-tasting soup is delicious with fresh baked bread and a green salad.

2 medium onions, chopped
2 1/2 cups water or vegetable stock, divided
1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon caraway seeds (optional)
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup soymilk
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 - 3 tablespoons red wine (optional)

In a large pan, braise onions in 1/2 cup water or stock until soft. Add mushrooms, dill, paprika, caraway seeds (if using), and black pepper and continue cooking for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add soy sauce and remaining 2 cups water or stock. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

Lightly warm oil in a saucepan, then add flour. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly, then whisk in soymilk until smooth. Simmer over low heat, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened, then add to mushroom mixture. Cover and simmer 15 minutes. Just before serving, whisk in lemon juice and red wine, if using.
